Here's something that you won't see on CNN. I saw this on a Chicago news web site, and I'm going to tell you point blank: this scared the hell out of me. I'll tell you something else, too: it pissed me off. On Saturday (6/24) a lesbian-only pride parade was held in Chicago in honor of June being Gay Pride month. I won't use the term they used for the name of the march (because it's banned by myLot), but it rhymes with "tyke." About 1,500 women marched in the parade. The organizers of the march kicked some women out of the parade, telling them that their presence "made people feel unsafe." Who were these women? Jerry Falwell's daughters? That lady from Kentucky who wouldn't issue same-sex marriage licenses and some of her church friends? No, they were three lesbian women. Three Jewish lesbian women. The three women carried the gay rainbow flag that had a Jewish Star of David on it to symbolize that they were both Jewish and homosexual. They were banned from the parade for what the organizers said was being "pro-Zionist," which is contrary to the organization's official position of being "pro-Palestinian and anti-Zionist." This scares me because this isn't 1939 Nazi Germany, it's 2017 United States of America. It pisses me off because nobody's reporting that we had someone yelling Jude! (the German word for Jew) in a major U.S. city and discriminating because of it. It's also a little ironic that it's people who preach tolerance and acceptance of all doing the discriminating, but...... News article from Chicago gay newspaper:

Anne Marie, Anti-Semitism has been around for a very long time. In Minneapolis where I grew up Mt. Sinai hospital was established because I think it was in the 1920's Jews were not allowed into medical school. I grew up with hate.

I hate to tell you that CNN will not give you the true facts. CNN hates Jews. I will tell you why they were banned. They were banned because they were Jewish. The Arabs like to tell lies about us Jews and Israel so they convince the people that are easy to fool that they are right. That is what it is about. I don't know what you know about the world today. I will tell you my view as a Jew. What happened in the Holocaust was terrible and today we have the left and the Arabs trying to turn normal people into hating us Jews. Look around what is happening in Europe. Jews are singled out and are beaten and murdered because they are Jews. It has been happening in the United States for many years. I grew up in Minneapolis and there were many that hated us there and other parts of the United States and other places. People have not learned from what happened in the Holocaust and as a Jew I will never understand let alone how any Jew can live in Germany or any part of Europe for that matter. We finally have our own country and there are those that do not want us her or on this earth even though we contribute so much to the world. I will tell you we are not going anywhere. We are here to stay and all the countries that tried to destroy have not and will not succeed because we are strong and here to stay.

And our feckless mayor, who is a total jerk, has told all that Chicago will always be a sanctuary city and all are welcome here.

That's terrible, especially since it occurred in your country which is supposed to be amongst the most civilised in the world.

Yeah, that makes no sense at all. Hypocritical, even.

Absolutely despicable. I also noticed the article said the American flag was banned as it is viewed as a symbol of oppression...the American flag banned here in America! What the actual hell? As for the Jewish ladies who were thrown out, it's interesting how ultra-"liberal" groups discriminate against others who don't fit their agenda. Why were they even asking them about their political opinion? They were there to celebrate being Jewish and lesbian, not to force political opinion on anybody. Whether they support Israel or not is nobody's business. This seems like it should be investigated as a hate crime. I can't believe this sort of crap is happening in the U.S. It's the 21st century and this country is more divided than ever.
